MASTER BOX MAKING CUTTER KIT

Gifkins Dovetail has three cutter kits which are designed to give the box maker the best tools available to produce beautiful boxes:

  1. The Ultimate cutter kit [cutters 01 to 06],
  2. the Ultimate upgrade kit [cutters 07 to 11],
  3. the Masters cutter kit [cutters 01 to 11].

The Master cutter kit contains ten cutters that will stretch your imagination and enhance your box making:

  • 01  Rebate cutter,  TGRC1 B ½. Cut the trench for the base and the lid of a box. Cuts a rebate 4mm wide and 5mm deep [or 1.6mm deep with a big bearing; see item #06]. [G]
  • 02  Panel raising bit, TGPR 1 1/2. Create a decorative inward curve on the lid panel. 32mm diameter, 4.8mm radius on top corners, 8° negative shear angle. [G]
  • 03  Tenon cutter, TGTC 1 ½. Use in conjunction with the slot cutter to make a ‘frame and panel’ box lid. 32mm diameter, 8º negative shear angle for a super clean cut. [G]
  • 04  Slot cutter, TA700 3.2 M ½. Cut the slot to insert in the tenon of the ‘frame and panel’ lid. Off-the-shelf slot cutter, 3.2mm cut, 51mm diameter.
  • 05  Spiral cutter, TSRW 5.32. Cut open the box with two passes to get crisp, clean edges. Off-the-shelf 4mm solid carbide down-cut spiral, 1/4″ shank.
  • 06  19mm bearing for the Rebate cutter. Use this bearing first to make a shallow pass on the trenches for a box base and lid. Put on the small bearing to complete the job. Remember to go gently. Let the cutter and the router do the job for you.
  • 07  Bullnose bit 2mm, TBN 2 ½. Use to round over slim internal sleeves inside a small box. For example, the desktop box.
  • 08  Bullnose bit 3.5mm, TBN 4 ½. Use to round over the lining of a large jewellery box. For instance, the sleeves of the special jewellery box.
  • 09  Rounding over bit, T506 B ½. Round over the edges of boxes, especially the tops.
  • 10  Core box bit, T416 ½. Cut finger slots in the sides of boxes, and in lift-out insert trays.
  • 11  Chamfer bit, T912 B ½. Use the chamfer bit to shape the back outer edges of a hinged box. The open box lid will then sit back neatly, without damaging edges or hinges.

Please note: postage will be added to purchases when we process your order.

IMPORTANT—WARNING

All these cutters are designed for use in a table mounted router, and should not be used in a hand held router. The cutters are not guaranteed against breaking. The spiral cutter in particular, has a fine tip and should always be used in the table with a fence.

Take extra care to note the feed direction of the rebate cutter. With all cutting operations, the feed direction is opposite to the direction of motion of the cutting tips (i.e. opposite the direction of the tips as they enter the work piece).

Cutter care:
Prolong the life of your cutter and save money.

[1] Before every box making session, place a drop of sewing machine oil in the bearing. The bearing is not sealed, so dirt and grime build up over time. If you do not keep the bearing clean, it will seize, causing damage to the cutter and your template.

[2] Regularly check that the grub screw in the side of the cutter has not vibrated loose. Alternatively, use a product like ‘Loctite’ to fix the grub screw in place. Hint: to glue in a grub screw, do so over a light coloured cloth on the kitchen table [I guarantee you will lose the grub screw if you do this in the workshop]. Position the screw hole over the flat edge on the cutter housing. Place a small drop of ‘Loctite’ in the hole and screw in the grub screw.
